During the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, we have been asked to stay at home as much as possible and keep our distance from others. This is an important step in slowing the spread of the virus, and staying at home can help to save lives.
With schools, colleges, workplaces, and shops all closed, our lives and routines have changed. This is a difficult transition for many people, and it’s important to look after your wellbeing and your mental health.
If you’re finding social distancing challenging, or you’re not sure what you can and can’t do, find resources and support below.
